“Increasing demand for lightweight and high strength materials expected to drive the core materials market for composites”
The global core materials market for composites is projected to reach USD 1.92 billion by 2022, registering a CAGR of 8.77% between 2017 and 2022. The growing demand from wind energy sector, increasing use of composites in the aerospace industry, and recovery of the marine sector in the U.S. are the major factors fueling the growth of the global core materials market for composites. However, the core materials market is a capital-intensive market, which is the main barrier for entry of new players in the market. In addition, delay and uncertainty in renewal of the Production Tax Credit (PTC) is also restraining the growth of the market.

“Wind energy is the fastest-growing end-use industry segment of the core materials market for composites”
Wind energy is a key solution to energy security, air pollution, and price stability. This is driving the demand for core materials in this industry. As per the GWEC, in 2015, there were commercial wind power installations in more than 90 countries, with a total installed capacity of 432 GW. The rapid growth of the wind energy sector in China, India, and other countries are driving the demand for foam core materials for composites at a significant rate.

“Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing core materials market for composites”
Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing core materials market for composites. The rising demand for high performance materials from wind energy and aerospace industries, and increasing expansion and other developmental strategies being undertaken in the region are factors leading to the growth of the core materials market for composites in Asia-Pacific.
China led the core materials’ market in Asia-Pacific, accounting for more than half of the demand for core materials in the region in 2016. Increase in the number of installations of wind energy turbines in 2016 and high-speed rail projects is driving the demand for core materials in the country.
